Kat Stacks Hasn't Changed: The World's Most Hated Web Star After One Year

Andrea Herrera slides headphones off her sleek black mane and steps out of a recording booth. Wearing a tight blue dress and pumps that are a half-size too big, she's anxious as she leans against a nearby pool table -- or at least as anxious as one can be after drinking half a bottle of cognac.

It's late October, and just the day before, the 23-year-old released her first single, a repetitious dis track called "Bitch Who," but on this Tuesday, she's more interested in her day job: instigating. Inside a dimly lit Miami Gardens office complex, she spends a half-hour crafting a perfectly composed photo for her 68,000 Instagram followers to tear apart.

The former Tootsie's stripper looks up from her Android phone and bats her cartoonish eyelashes before relaying, "Someone just said I look like I was born with a dick."

Inspiring this sort of vitriol is exactly how Herrera -- better known as Kat Stacks -- became a public figure. By trash-talking every rapper who appeared in videos on WorldStarHipHop.com, she amassed 250,000 followers on Twitter.

But then an immigration judge threatened to deport her to her native Venezuela, and she spent two years locked up.

After she was released, Herrera went on a media tear, declaring her alter ego a thing of the past on local and national television, in hip-hop rags, and to anyone who would listen. Kat Stacks the swaggering, universally loathed video star had been replaced by an advocate for sex-trafficking victims and the DREAM Act.

But a year after her release, not much has changed. She subsists mostly on Skittles, Hennessy, and Instagram hearts. She spends her days watching VH1 reality shows about rappers. And she hasn't really done much to better the lot of the immigrants she said she would help.

I don't understand all the negative comments.... I actually thought this was interesting.. If not purely from a sociological standpoint. Yes, she is completely irrelevant to our society on a whole, but it is still interesting to see how a victim of human-trafficking is coping now that she is free from that disgusting world. It is disappointing, however, to see that she hasn't changed at all and that she isn't using her "fame" to do anything positive.
